What is Unfair Dismissal?

Unfair dismissal is a statutory right that enables employees to make a claim if they believe they have been unfairly dismissed or made redundant. This often results in an Employment Tribunal hearing, which will decide the outcome of your claim.

Unfair dismissal claims often arise from: 

  • discrimination
  • poor disciplinary or redundancy procedures
  • blowing the whistle on unlawful practices
  • raising grievances
  • being bullied or harassed
  • requests for time off to look after family
  • refusal to accept changes to employment conditions
  • refusal to work on Sundays in retail or betting shops

Can I Make an Unfair Dismissal Claim?

Unfair dismissal and redundancy claims can only be pursued if you have been in your role for at least 2 years. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to make a claim, contact me to discuss your case and identify the steps we need to take.
